A Stage 1 air alert is implemented when concentrations exceed or are forecasted to exceed 25 µg/m3. No fuel source may be added to the combustion chamber of a firebox of any solid fuel burning appliance or waste oil burning appliance. Residents should rely instead on their home’s alternate, cleaner source of heat (such as a furnace, boiler or electric baseboard heaters) until the Stage 1 air alert is canceled. If a building owner or other person with a property or managerial interest in the building has an approved “no other adequate source of heat” designation, the building owner is exempted from complying with the Stage 1 air alert restrictions for that building. If a building owner or other person with a property or managerial interest in the building has an approved Stage 1 waiver the building owner is exempted from complying with the Stage 1 air alert restrictions for that building.
